Dry Creek In Lush Courtyard

Dry creek bed, boulders, Japanese Blood Grass and other mass plantings make this entrance garden one of my favorites.

Ross NW Watergardens added this to Utilizing Boulders In Landscape Design
December 1, 2012
In this landscape the boulders serve two purposes. The boulders along the stream help define and naturalize the dry creek that runs through the landscape. Low profile stones serve as a visual bridge from one element to another, blending them naturally. The more dramatic grouping serves as a focal point. The upright boulder draws the eye down the stream and on to the home's entrance. Setting a boulder "up" in this fashion takes skill and patience. It may also require special equipment. Large boulders are often lifted with a tractor, reach forklift, or crane. Heavy duty straps or braided metal cables allow you to grab a boulder and place it exactly how you want.
